5 Films to See at Cinemalaya 2016
It's that time of the year again, when we celebrate indie cinema at the Cinemalaya Film Festival. With so many full-length and short films to choose from, it can be difficult to pick just one or two or three (a very good problem to have!). Here are five new interesting titles to help you out.
- Get Certified
In this fantasy comedy, you’ll meet a recently deceased girl who decides that her next life goal is to become a full-fledged demon. The question is: does she have what it takes to be hell’s next top demon?
- Fish Out of Water
Ever felt out of place? That's Korean-Filipino teenager Min-jae's default setting as he grew up being bullied for his mixed race. Partial to his Korean side, he's not too pleased when his mom decides to send him to the Philippines—but maybe, just maybe, this trip is exactly what he needs.
- Ang Bagong Pamilya ni Ponching
You already know that you should just ignore and delete spam messages, but what about those who actually fall for them? Find out what happens when a text scam goes awfully right for the schemer.
Food meets real-life drama at Juanita's kitchen. Get to know this young woman (played by Judy Ann Santos) through the dishes she prepares for all the people in her life.

I started college with little to no support coming from my family. I can't blame them tho, life was pretty hard for us to afford college. I had to stand up on my own just to get by. Good thing I have a boyfriend who supports me all the way. But I can't let him shoulder it all, so, I had to accept sidelines just to finance my studies. It was fortunate of me to be blessed with talented hands to do crafts. And now, I'm so proud to say that I'll be graduating next year! So, let me share with you my works that helped me all through out my college journey.
This Quarantine has been a threat to my mental health since I had a lot of time to overthink things. This is surely a depressing time but I found my inner peace by writing. I found my way back into my first love, which is writing. And there I realized that this pandemic may seem worse but it will only get worser if you let it ruin your peace. With this, I wanna share to you my sanctuary.

WHO ARE YOU: PRELUDE
Sinungaling na ba ako kung sasabihin ko sa inyo ang pangalan ko? Hindi ako sure kung anong sasabihin kong pangalan ko pero may nagsasabi sa aking wag nalang magpakilala sa inyo.
May gusto lang naman akong itanong... Paano kung may makilala ka sa kasalukuyan na nagpapaalala sayo sa nakaraan? Anong gagawin mo kung ang nakilala mo sa kasalukuyan ay may tinatago pa lang sikreto na kahit siya mismo ay walang alam pero may kinalaman sa iyong nakaraan? Anong gagawin mo kung ang dalawang ito ay may koneksyon? Anong pipiliin mo? Ang nakilala mo sa nakaraan? O ang nagpakilala bilang ibang tao sa kasalukuyan? Past? Or Present?
